Genentech's Clinical Research Fellowship programs offer third- and fourth-year Fellows with a passion for clinical research the crucial experience they need to transform knowledge into practice.
A world leader in clinical research, Genentech has generated large clinical databases from multiple randomized clinical trials and registries. Your own exceptional talents can help take us further, building on this data while giving you the opportunities you're seeking to propel your career.
Delivering superior clinical research requires close collaborations between academic and industry professionals. Our Fellowship programs in Oncology, Immunology, Ophthalmology, Pulmonary medicine and other specialty areas allow you to benefit from this collaboration, as you work directly with top institutions and physicians to strengthen our commitment to developing innovative new therapeutics.
At the conclusion of their one-year fellowship, participants will be requested to present their data to an internal peer review group.
For each academic year, the Genentech Oncology, Immunology, Pulmonary and Opthalmology groups will each select one to three qualified Clinical Research Fellows through a competitive application process.
The fellowship is open to third- and fourth-year fellows in major academic institutions in the United States.
Exceptional senior residents might also be considered as fellowship candidates.
Fellows and their academic institutions must agree to uphold Genentech confidentiality and intellectual property contracts.
Fellows must be able to work in Genentech's South San Francisco headquarters.
Fellowship applications for the each academic year will be accepted through June. Applications received after the deadline have been held for consideration for the subsequent year’s program.
The program will typically begin in July/August on a date mutually determined by Genentech and the selected fellows.
All non-selected applicants are eligible to re-apply in subsequent years in accordance with eligibility criteria.
